Birder's Guide to Travel | March 2014 8 Michael L. P. Retter West Lafayette, Indiana ravel means different things to different people. For some birders, it's a day trip, driving an hour or so from their homes in the Phoenix suburbs up to Sunfower to look for Gray Vireos and Black-chinned Sparrows. For a few, it's full-fedged globetrotting, and South Africa is just one of the many locations on their bucket lists. Still others fall somewhere in between, adding some birds to their lifelists while they're visiting relatives in Victoria, British Columbia. However you travel, I hope you will fnd something of use in this second issue of Birder's Guide to Travel. We listened to your criticisms of the last issue and applied them to the content you see here. The "20 Best Birds" column and the Pelagic Directory were particularly well received, so we were sure to include them again. Please let us know what was missing that you'd like to see in the next issue. Tell us what you liked, too, so that we can start planning to bring it back in next year's Birder's Guide to Travel. And we always appreciate hearing from folks who want to offer their own advice to the rest of the membership by penning an article. You can reach me at and via discussions linked to at . Happy travels! Michael L. P. Retter Editor, Birder's Guide From the Editor T 2-Letters.indd 8 3/4/14 12:45 PM
